Melanie Richardson Dundy


I started writing children’s books years ago when my son was dealing with temporary physical problems that caused him to experience things differently from other children.

I enjoyed writing books for him so much that I just kept writing and writing.

How Do I know God Loves Me? is available in paperback and eBook formats. The rest of my books are in eBook format only.

I grew up just outside of Chicago and studied writing at Southern Illinois University and University of Iowa. Today I live in Oregon with my husband, Mike, and two pups, Charlie and Murphy.

Thanks for visiting my site. I always welcome feedback.
